Alright, I hear lots of complaining about eRepublik often. And don't get me wrong, I see just as many problems in this game as you do. But it's kinda pointless to simply whine about it. If we wanna see change happen in this game, we have to state it clearly and concisely. We can’t make vague requests such as “Economy sux fix it”, because that’s not really helpful. EVERYONE knows the economy is messed up. But perhaps, if we make our ideas clear and simple, and of course feasible, maybe we’d have a better chance of getting what we want. I did this previously in my article, requesting that the admins fix certain things and add elements to improve eRep. Of course, perhaps I wasn’t the reason some of these were implemented, but it was nice to see some of my ideas actually make it into eRep. I like to think that I played a small part in getting things from the drawing board to the coding.
Let’s see how I did before (totally showing off)
1. Bug Fixes
Okay, it was long overdue, but to the admins’ credit, they did fix a lot of bugs that had been lying around for months. There’s still some leftover glitches on the map, and obviously there’s been troubles with elections, but the admins are at least trying. I think. Success \o/
2. Customizable UI, Headlines
Yeah yeah, hasn’t happened yet. But isn’t that what scripts are for?
3. Grand Alliances
Apparently, the admins are working on this
I look forward to how you mess this up, admins ^.^
4. Official Ministries
Should give us a medal though
5. Improved Map
*points at main screen* Need I say more?
6. Resource Variety
This one (and most of the others below) was a long shot. I didn’t really expect this to happen, but I wanted to spitball some ideas
Apparently, something like this happened in the past, but was phased out. Oh well. I woulda liked to see defense bonuses again...
9. Core System
Okay, this would’ve been cool, but I guess its usefulness would be limited. After all, Germark’s the only major case of this happening, huh?
11. Newspaper Series
You coulda done this, admins.
I WANT MY SERIESSSS
12. Customizable Congress
13. Bazooka Factories
Coming soon once Plato’s coffers run low
14. Defensive Buildings, Infrastructure
I could see this happening in the future someday But not today...
Alright, enough self-plugging. My point is, if you ask for something, give clear logical reasoning, and remain respectful, awesome things can happen
Four things out of my wishlist (some of the reasonable ones ofc) actually came to fruition! \o/
So here’s where I need your help. Come up with some ideas on how to make eRep better, and let me know with either a comment below or by PMing me. If you give a specific way this game can be better (broad ideas are obvious and harder to pinpoint and implement), and use reasoned thought and logic, I’ll be more than happy to put it down. Most articles that have great ideas only have one, but if we give many ideas at once, it’ll be bound to get noticed! I got the last issue up to 200+, right?
Let’s get some ideas and send this to the heavens ^.^
We shouldn’t have to keep playing JUST for the community! We deserve a fun (re: tolerable) game too!
Until next time, take care!
(and btw, anyone who just says LOOOL ECON SUX will get slapped )
